. that is outside the margin of error. there is a solid majority of ohio voters say they think governor romney's policies will benefit the rich. only 9 percent say the middle class will be benefited. less than a third think the policies will treat everyone the same. with president obama, 8 percent say it is helping the rich and the rest divided equally. that is not good for governor romney. this comes after the secretly recorded video of governor romney, saying 47 percent feel they are owed everything by the government and they will never take "responsibility." carl cameron, the campaign dispute as lot of the numbers. >>carl: they do. they point to the fact that real clear politics has five points for an advantage when you average all the polls. the bigger dispute is how most of the public commercial polls are being continue. they argue that the sample, or the personal of democrats in the pool of voters that are surveyed, is artificially inflated. in one poll, it assumes that the democratic registration will be nine percentage points higher than republicans and romney campaign says that is not
is utterly dismissing mr. romney. romney's foreign policy mouthpiece was challenged by andrea mitchell to defend his somewhat hawkish posture towards iran. take a listen, dana. >> is governor romney really prepared to go to war with iran right now and open up a regional war? >> so governor romney has not advocated military action and any suggestion that he has by the president or his surrogates is a mischaracterization. >> dana, i'm sorry, so romney doesn't advocate military action, but the president is weak for not advocating military action. how does that one work? >> let me explain it that way, the position romney is taking on any foreign policy issue is he disagrees with president obama regardless of president obama's position on this. afghanistan. he disagrees with it. what would he do differently? >> nothing. >> we don't know. he disagrees with the position on iran, on israel. what would he do differently? nothing, because the united states are at the mercy of events unless he is going to reinstate the neocon advisers. >> 17 of the 24 advised president bush. >> and we saw what th
this was the mitt romney that david brooks has wanted to see all along, yut lining policy, fluent on the topics. talk about the president for a second, steve. there has been a lot of consternation and critique in certain corners about the fact that the president isn't meeting with any world leaders. on one point on "the view" talking about what happened in terms of the death of ambassador chris stevens and your assessment of whether this was a good move? >> well, look, first of all, on the way he phrases the things on 60 minutes when he talked about the bump in the road he gave his political opponents ammunition. i don't think there's going to be a long-term effect. the issues raised this week about he should have met with netanya netanyahu, other world leaders, there's some political vulnerability and republicans are probably correct to pick up on that. i think the most significant thing about the noise that's being made about all this is that i think we have eight or ten polls now that have shown on the question of the economy, which was supposed to be the element of the romney campaign, vote
, gm is alive and osama bin laden is dead, that's not foreign policy so mitt romney has a grand opportunity to raise his poll numbers by putting obama's feet to the fire. >> there's only one candidate who politicized the death of four american heroes, you know, late at night on september 11th and he was really rebuked by many leading republicans for how, you know, just not ready for prime time he was. i think he showed his lack of depth and experience on foreign policy clearly on september 11th, but i think, you know, all of the calls and points to that this is a coverup is-- it's really laughable in a sense. i don't want to, you know, take away from the seriousness of the loss of american life, but you know, my mom always says, i look for love in all the wrong places. republicans and angela, you and your counterparts are looking for a coverup in all the wrong places. >> i have not said one time it's a coverup. i believe that susan rice was a good foot soldier for the administration, but to even look at the fort hood attack, we said that was work place violence and found out tha
policy economy. lou: that is just about all there is, think. romney is in trouble. >> there is no question that this is a very tight race. some of these polls were they show obama heading in ohio, they are really over sampling democrats and they're also overestimating democratic turnout because they're using -- >> i think everybody will stipulate to that. the deal is, this guy, we can't find paul ryan on the campaign trail. >> i disagree. at that ron is connecting and rain is connecting. they're generating huge crowds. the only reason people say he is not connecting is because the left-wing media is telling you he's of connecting. that's not true. >> i'm disappointed in some of the romney messaging. when he came out in that ad and said he was talking about the middle class and now obamacare is about the middle-class, i thought that was a misstep. it barack obamacare about the middle class would not be raising taxes. i feel like now is the time were you need to really hit obama strong, foreign policy, economic policy, with respect to benghazi. these are all missteps
. >> governor romney's speech at the clinton global initiative had a narror focu ren ai proposing a new policy for overseas contributions. >> the aim of a much larger share of our aid must be the promotion of work and the fostering of free enterprise. nothing we can do a a nation ceesat more effectively and permanently than sharing the insight that lies at the foundation of america's own economy. and that is that free people pursuing happiness in their own ways, build a stron and vedut a new approach for a new era. >> governor ed rendell, two candidates both playing the role of statesman at the same time in the same city or ratively the same time in theame city. president oba, obviously, had the heavier ftsctuay the president and the commander in chief and the events in the middle east has increased the load in terms of what he must demonstrate to the rest of the world. what did you make of his addre to the u.n. general assembly? did he effectively make the case for americ did he effectively outline aie nat hadick atwoli to alawe america and the middle east? >> i thought you saw both men at th
the african-american community are supporting mitt romney? >> no, absolutely. there's all sorts of policies that are hostile to blacks, hostile to hispanics, hostile to gays, hostile to women. i mean, the party only seems to love corporations which it thinks are people and rich people. everybody else we don't care about you. didn't he say he didn't care about 47% of the country? >> i believe did he. >> i this i the percentage is a bit low. and once again we see the party is putting the party ahead of the country which we see with the entire obstruction strategy which should be a national scandal. >> professor, you have to repeat those words from that caller to mr. limbaugh and i suppose that's why they want all these illegals into the country. you know, damn right. he obviously doesn't realize this current president has been draconian in pursuit of illegal immigration, has spent more money, there are more border patrols on the ground, and yet somehow the caller says this to mr. limbaugh and his response, damn right. >> well, first of all, martin, you're confusing the matter here. you're dea

opponent is clueless because he is on the ououtside. romney is a dolit for attacking our middle east policy but not the president for not knowing the policy. we can't make it up. you better make sure you are ripping both or you prove you had no standard, actually you prove you have one standard electing the guy you like, not the guy you don't. that is when it gets offensive, when you take ofin t offense toy one gay
tuesday. see you tomorrow. alert. governor romney and president obama head-to-head on foreign policy this morning. a pair of dueling addresses on the world stage. a live look at new york city. any moment now governor romney will speak at the global initiative put on by former president bill clinton. that has become a big event every year at this time of year. then we'll hear from the president too. there are some issues to listen to. good morning welcome to our coverage. i'm bill hemmer. martha: good morning everybody. i'm martha maccallum. a little bit later
why have barack obama's policies contributed to that. i don't think it is sufficient for mitt romney to assert that he has handled it well. cheryl: romney came out with a housing plan, that includes a cover sheet. honestly, people are looking for more details from him. >> as an example, the recession ended in june of 2009. that is when unemployment was heading towards my .5%. it was time for the presidency to do something to address this skyrocketing unemployment. what did barack obama do? introduced the affordable care act. obamacare. and he spent 18 months legislating on a piece of legislation that whatever you may think about has nothing to do with employment in the united states. that is what he chose to do. it seems to me that that is the sort of connection that mitt romney ought to be making between the president and the weak economy. cheryl: i'm not so sure that the president cares at this point. so today he was on "the view." talking to the ladies of "the view." >> we can survive a lot. but the american people don't want to survive. we want everyone to thrive. >> i just have
, either mitt romney or paul ryan. or in a campaign ad specifically on this tax policy center analysis. now, the heritage foundation has a very detailed pushback in which it says that the tax policy center is off its rocker and that essentially that it is as rich said cooking the books because it is choosing which deductions and credits are on the table and off the table in its analysis and that mitt romney's plan when you deal with congress could eventually get to the point where you get to the number needed to keep it revenue neutral. and you can get there. but the tax policy center doesn't and so they get to the point where well you can't get to the number so he's going to have to raise taxes on the middle class. dagen: why aren't they fighting back with ads? >> i have no clue. i mean i really have no chlue. i think a lot of republicans are saying the same thing. we are one week away from the debate in denver and there will have to be some pushback because you know the president will be armed with that very tax policy center stat. dagen: some people are talking about the debates that thi
facing this campaign. first, when is the last time that governor mitt romney gave a speech or did an event or otherwise made some sort of policy news that had an impact on voters and on this race? >> i mean i don't know. it's been a while. that is one of the things about these campaigns. not that romney has lost it all in one moment through a fatal gaffe although there have been bad moments but every day he's losing it day by day each day in a new and creative method and i think it's very tricky and what you're starting to see in the quotes there is a potential for republican -- for kind of, you know, staffer starting to give premore tems to the press, spin how it's not their fault. toward the enof the mccain campaign they were preparing internal memos of how to exonerate themselves of blame. you'll start to see that coming. when that kind of thing comes, republican money people start to smell it and look for other places to put their resources. >> melissa, is there extra credit for losing creatively? you're a teacher and educator. >> i mean there actually is extra credit for losi
on foreign policy are now taking center stage. in the must win battleground of colorado, mitt romney previewed his foreign policy argument against the president. >> he said the developments in the middle east are bumps in the road. yeah, that was my reaction. bumps in the road? we had an ambassador assassinated. these are not bumps in the road. these are human lives. >> the white house called that assault desperate and offensive. romney was attacking the president's comments on "60 minutes" describing recent unrest in the middle east. >> i was pretty certain and continue to be pretty certain there are going to be bumps in the road. because in a lot of these places, one organizing principle has been islam. >> reporter: romney criticized the president's remarks in more detail. >> includes a muslim brotherhood individual becoming president of egypt, syria in tumult, iran on the cusp of nuclear capability, it includes pakistan being in commotion. there are extraordinary events going on in the middle east. considering those events, either one of them or all of them collectively as bumps i
of foreign policy and that could be an > prm th, and that is governor romney when asked what he would do differently, doesn't come up with a very cogent or believable answer. >> before i let you go, ed rendell, wanted to ask you about pennsylvania. here you've got the president up by 12 points in the latest atointhen race where senator bob casey is only up by six points? >> well, i don't -- i can't answer that at all, andrea. i think bob casey will win i double digits. there's no question about that. he's always been very, very popular. in fact, he's only lost ew eioer and you remember who that was to. he's tough to beat. mr. smith is a very nice man and, you know, he mes across as very earnest, but i d't think bob casey is in ait of trouble. >> if he's in a bit of tuble tenefeln trouble for democrats. >> no. >> before you go, both of you, please weigh in on the nfl. ed, i knowou're a huge football fan. vin webber, the vikings. >> look, for a minnesota vikings fan, there is nothing to complain abo aftereeathe 49ers last sunday, so i'm going to have to leave all the complaints to governor
of romney ryan. paul ryan clearly went off the president on foreign policy, listen to this from yesterday. >> turn on the tv and it reminds you of 1979 tehran, when they're burning our flags and capitals all around the world. they're storming our embassieem we've lost four of our diplomates and what is the signal that our government is sending the rest of the world? we're being equivocal on our values, we're being slow to speak up for individual rights, for human rights, for democracy. stuart: a reminder again, please, the president is addressing the u.n. today at around 10 a.m. eastern, but rather than meeting with the world's leaders, he'll appear on the view, roughly late morning eastern time. a few more details on ahmadnejad in new york. here for the united nations general assembly and will address the assembly tomorrow, that will be yom kippur. according to iran's news agency he'll meet with members of the occupy wall street movement and looks like he'll be staying with the one percenters, and staying in a hotel in a room that costs $775 per night. and the world leaders are assembled
the message is one governor romney brought here two days ago is that the economy cannot stand another four years of the president's failed economic policies and they're out here in the mountain west and the great plains and hear congressman ryan talk about the keystone pipeline and focusing on the country's national resources, bringing energy jobs online and putting people back to work and expecting the president to hit him on other things. >> one thing, though, ron, the obama campaign said, though, if romney loses ohio it is likely game over. is there a sense that the republican campaign is feeling that pressure? >> reporter: yeah. i think they're acknowledging they're behind. they don't believe it's game over and no republican president ever has gotten to the white house without taking ohio and even though he's behind, campaign insiders saying that their internal polling is much closer race than the public polls and will leave them where they are. they think they have a fight in ohio on their hands. >> ron mott reporting. now christin welker in bowling green. >> reporter: good afternoon
that, probably true internationally and in politics it's true in terms of domestic policy and we've seen that play out in this campaign. as he's done letterman, leno, sat down with "people" magazine, and mitt romney has done plenty of these things too. this is not a barack obama or mitt romney thing. >> i'm just asking about the timing. >> what they' trying do is reacindependentoters who havet t m u y and they think they may get them and female voters, get them through "the view." the timing makes it look more like he is focused on campaigning first andoremost than being president first and forest and has opened h up to cdeerismro republicans about,ou know, how do you have it time on your schedule to do a midday talk show and to not sit down with some of these people. i just return to jeff's point, it's because he understands that any meetings here areraug tact a exactly six weeks away from a very contentious election and he doesn't want t go down that road. you can debate whether that's the right or wrong thing for the president to do but it is the political thing that is being
outsourced his foreign policy to hillary clinton? and what about the incredible cover up of the libyan terrorist attack. this could be benghazi gate on the eve of the election. also this evening, mitt romney should draw a red line for middle income taxpayers and say you will not lose your deductions and you will get yours lower tax rates. he has to have a chris cal clear growth message in next week's debate. it could be his last chance. plus the nfl made a deal overnight and the real refs will be on the field this evening. this is a huge story where there were billions of dollars at stake. we have an exclusive new england patriots owner robert kraft joins me this evening. he is the first owner to speak out. all right. following monday's outburst by mahmoud ahmadinejad, it was israeli benjamin netanyahu's turn today. danielle lee joins us with the details. >> good evening. today prime minister netanyahu used a cartoon-like graphic to drive home his fear that iran could have a nuclear bomb completed by this coming summer. he said the time for peaceful negotiations is running out. from a
